WHO WE ARE
Building Community & Inspiring Change
Odyssey Impact® is a unique network of faith-based communities, congregations, faith leaders, seminarians, and secular partners based on a common set of values. Together, with filmmakers and partners, we harness the diversity of experiences and perspectives to create and distribute powerful impact campaigns around urgent social justice issues with award-winning documentaries as the centerpiece of our work.
Founded in 1987 as the National Interfaith Cable Coalition, Odyssey Impact® is an interfaith 501c3 that has been catalyzing actions for social change within faith based and secular organizations ever since.
